My ITV expires 5th May. I have b...

Re: Parcel : UK to Spain

I have a parcel from UK languishing in Madrid with UPS for 10 days now despite providing [email protected].com with the details they requested within minutes of recceiving their text. Further enquiries to [email protected].com and UPS customer services have been ignored. It gets a 'warehouse scan' every...

Re: Enrique's account deactivated !

Problem is if a member's password is compromised, and access is gained and the email address is changed by the hacker, then the real member contacts us from a different email, how do we know who is the 'real' member? Understood. But there needs to be a way for the genuine member to get a quick reso...

Having carefully considered what this means f...

Re: I have been expecting something like this: Amazon UK

I still use them for some things that are significantly cheaper than ES and that still occurs now and again. I use them more these days for searching for a product, copying the ASIN reference number and running it through ES, NL, DE, FR, and even IT. UK Marketplace sellers will be avoided come 01/01...

These changes could inclu...

Re: Curfew?

The 11 pm curfew is set to be moved to midnight as hospitality business owners in several provinces have requested.
It looks as though the Andalucía border will be closed for the All Saints weekend (this weekend).

Thanks. I followed the 'New' route and completed it this morning. I have the receipt. I wasn't sure which docs they wanted so I attached passport, NIE and green form. Fingers crossed that's all they want.

Re: Residencia appointment

Thank you Beachcomber. My green form does not have an expiry date but the "Fecha de caducidad" box is mandatory. Any ideas what should be entered there in that case?
